This statistical summary is the fourteenth in a series on vegetable crops in Floridat 

It v.as made possihle through the joint efforts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting 
Division of the Agricultural L'arketing Service, Ut S« Department of Agricultvire, the Department of 
Agricultxiral Economics, Agricultural Experiment Stations, University of Florida, grov.ers, shippers, 
and other informed sources throughout the States 

This summary shows acreage, production and value of 18 commercial vegetable crops and other 
related data. The severe v;eather during the v/inter of 1957-58 lowered production on the crops 
hereing estimated to about 33 million cv/t. , and the gross valuation to an estimated $132 million, 
or approximately $31 million less than that of last season and $51 million less than the $18'+ 
million record high of l95^-55» 

Data showing production and harvesting costs for certain crops in selected areas are presented 
as a five-year average in lieu of no sxarvey of this nature covering last season. 

It is our objective to provide growerss small and large, with timely crop information. Even 
more timely information would be very helpful. A step in this direction has been underway in 
recent years for celery and tomatoes. Such information has a leveling and stabilising influence 
in minimising exaggerations and counteracting unfound rumors. This voliime is herewith submitted 
for your careful consideration and use as a source of statistical information. 



ACKNOVJLEDGlvIENTS 



Vi'ith the exception of the shipment information, the data contained herein, are estimates and 
are based on reports by, and interviews with growers, shippers, marketing associations and organi- 
sations, seedsmen, railroad representatives, canners and other processors. 

Vi/e gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each person and organisation contributing to the 
development of these data. V/e further acknov;ledge the^ assistance extended by the Agricultxiral 
Extension Service through its Coimty Agricultural Agents, the Federal-State Inspection and Market 
News Services, the Florida State Marketing Bureau, the Florida State Farmers L'arkets, the Agricul- 
tural Stabilisation and Conservation Committee, the State Plant Board, the State Industrial 
Commission through its farm labor placement service, the Florida Tomato and Cucumber Marketing 
Agreement Committees, the U. S. \i7eather Biireau and Frost Warning Service and many other well inform- 
ed sources. 

■ Much credit is due our entire clerical personnel for the painsteiking work they have done in 
preparing this bulletin for publication. Arlene Kruse and Doris Schankweiler handled most of the 
assembling of data and cutting of stencils. 



INDEX 



Each crop generally carries the following sequence of data "by season* Name of crop - Season? 
Acres for harvest by counties? Acreage, production and value - State summary; Acreage and produc- 
tion by counties and areas, 1957-585 Shipping data? Per acre costs and returns. Crops that harvest 
in more than one season are then combined in one total grouping classified as "all" and placed 
before the breakdown by seasonal groupings*.

DEFINITIONS MP EXPLANATIONS 

SEASONAL' GEOUPINGS - In order that, competitive production iwithin the State of Florida and the 
United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform groups, we have estab- 
lished a National pattern which is based on the most active harvesting periods. These major groups 
are WINTER, SPRING, SUiaiER, and FALL. The WINTER group includes the months of January, February, 
and March; SPRING include^s April, May, and June ; _SIM.IER includes July, August, and September 
(Florida carries no official sumicer commercial cropslF^ and "FALL ihcTud^s October, November, end . 
Decemberc These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period for a partic\ilar grouping' 
may extend into the preceding or follov/ing group. However, in arranging our data we have follcv.ed 
these groupings in so far as it is practical. For example, it has been considered practical to 
carry cabbage, cauliflower, escarole, lettuce, and strawberries as one season crops, ' designating 
them WINTER since the volume production is harvested generally during January, February, and March. 
Since some systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deemed best for all concerned to handle 
OUT classifications on a National basis even though they may not always agree v;ith some local 
designations now in use. . 

PLANTED ACREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" concept. Esti- 
mates of planted a.cres for any seasonal grouping consist of acres for harvest (see next paragraph) 
dui'ing that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for harvest during the season, but 
v/hich was lost or destroyed and did not produce a crop in the season vinder consideration. If the 
acreage is lost and not replanted it is counted as planted . If it is lost but replanted for har- 
vest in the same season as the original acreage w'ould have been harvested, the acreage replanted 
is not considered as additional acreage planted. However, if the acreage lost is replanted for 
harvest in a later season. It is considered as planted for both seasons and as acres for harvest 
only for the latter season. 

ACRES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from which a crop could have been har- 
vested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) warranted the harvest. It includes 
matxire acreage on which the harvest was postponed or delayed too long due to economic reasons and 
the prodxiction lost thereby. Acreage which produces such low yields or poor (quality that tho crop 
is not v;orth picking at any reasonably price is considered as crop failure and is not included in 
the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage v;hich produces yields v;hich would be harvested at 
reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 



YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merchantatle quality produced on an acre basis and 
may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic reasonse 

PEODUCTION - Total production represents the yield times (x) the acres for harvest * Production of 
value is that part of the production which v;as harvested and sold or utili*'ed and does not include 
economic . ahandonmentt 

ECONOMIC ABANIX)KI»IENT - This category includes matxire production not harvested "because of economic 
l^actors, such as low prices^ shortage of latorj etc* Such loss of production includes quantities 
left in fields partially harvested as well as production on acreage abandoned for economic reasons* 
In the production tables in this book economic abandonment is the difference betvv-een the total pro- 
duction and the production of value* 

Acreage abandoned at ^y stage of growth before maturity mil be considered as loss of acreage 
or crop failure rather than economic abandonment of production* 

AVERAGE PRICE - All prices, used in this report are per hundredweight on an f*o»b. basis or its 
equivalent 9 less selling, chapges* (Comparable average prices per standard unit is shown in 
parenthesis). 

TOTAL VALUE - The total value "is the average price per hundredweight times (x) the production of 
value* 

CANNED OB PHDCESSED ACREAGE AIID PHDEUCTION - The acreage of vegetables in Florida' planted solely 
for canning and ether processing purposes during the period covered by this publication has been 
confined principally to cucumbers for pickles* The acreages of beans and tomatoes, the principal 
crops processed? are planted primarily for fresh market, but each year substantial quantities axe 
canned or frozen* 

In order to shov/ the utilisation of the production from the acreage brought to harvest, three 
columns on production are used in the State Summaries* The first shows the total production, the 
second shows the production sold for fresh market consumption, and the third shows the production 
sold for processing (either canned or frozen)* Production abandoned for economic reasons is the 
total production minus the sm of the production for fresh market and processing* 

Those desiring to knov/ the eqiiivalent acreage utilised for processing should divide the number 
of hundredweight processed by the average yield then generally round to the nearest hundred* The 
prices given for processed beans and tomatoes are based on a per ton price and reduced to a per . 
hundredweight price (rounded to the nearest whole cent*) 

COSTS AND RETURNS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - This feature is contributed by the 
economics Depextment of ilorida Agricxiltural Ezperiment Stations* These tables represent the 
summarisation of grower records or estimates of costs and returns per acre from several vegetable 
crops in the major producing areas of Florida for a five-eeason average, 1952-53 to l956-57» since 
no survey of this nature was conducted covering the 1957-58 season* In so far as possible, growing 
and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items ezcluded from costs of materials* 

MIXED CAR MOVEIffiNT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months on Page 85* These 
darta include the equivalent cars shovji in oxir regular shipment data Tinder each specific crop carried 
in this publication* • "" " V"-/
